Have only lost one limb in 10 years.

I suppose your trees are large and strong.  And you probably get icicles every year.  The trees are used to them.   :laugh:

We got a lot of rain today.  It was coming down in sheets. I guess el nino has finally arrived for us.  A lot of flood warnings in the foothills and burn areas.

What I enjoy most is watching my little creek turn into a raging and angry river doing about 45mph, entire 100' trees ripping down the canyon like a battering ram clearing boulders like they were nothing.
I love nature unleashed, spitting in libs faces and pissing on their laws claiming they protecting the environment, and nature comes along and wipes their "Oh so precious" protected areas away. :thumbsup:

I trust all the precip you all are receiving is helping to refill the reservoirs.

I love seeing nature stake it's claim also!!

I drove through northern New England immediately after hurricane Floyd.  The raging waters were very dramatic and spectacular to watch.  I have never seen anything like it before.  Absolutely amazing to visualize the strength of nature and how it demands it's way.

Lets hope.

We get a lot of our water from the snow pack in the Sierras.

Last week they said we had 135% of normal and this storm system should bring several more feet of the white stuff.

You bet, many are already predicted to reach normal capacity very soon here in Northern Ca.
With the runoff from the Sierra, you'll probably be hearing reports of flooding in the valley very soon, and granted, this could all be avoided if they'd just build more dams. :rolleyes:

Why I like Winter time in my area.  Back deck temp reading 65º in the sun, front side of the house reading 42º.  By 3 P.M. it will be the other way around.  :biggrin:

Never complain about your weather again...



It feels like it hasn’t really stopped raining all winter.

But if you think it’s been soggy where you live spare a thought for a village in west Wales – where incredibly, it has rained every day since October.

The 700 residents of Eglwyswrw have put up with some form of rainfall – from light showers to more torrential drenchings – for 81 days on the trot.

Although not a British record – that was set in 1923 when the Isle of Islay, in the inner Hebrides, had 89 days of rain – it is the longest spell of consecutive wet weather in the area for more than 92 years.

Yesterday stoic locals in the Pembrokeshire village said they were used to braving poor weather, but some admitted the ‘biblical’ rain had begun to get them down.

Fortunately, today could mark a change in their luck, with forecasters predicting no rain for the first time since October 26. Councillor and farmer John Davies, 52, said villagers will ‘hold a party’ if the rain does actually stop.

He was forced to bring his sheep indoors early after many developed wool rot because their fleeces couldn’t dry out between showers.

‘We’ve had rain of biblical proportions,’ he said. ‘It’s poured down for 80 days and nights, so by that reckoning we would need two arks.

‘We are pretty hardy, spirited people in this part of west Wales, but it is grinding people down both physically and psychologically... I’ve never seen the ground as saturated as it is now.’

Brian Llewellyn, who runs the local garage and shop, added: ‘It’s starting to hit people in their pockets, you can’t get any work done.

‘Farmers, builders and fencing contractors have all been hit. I sell wellington boots and umbrellas but it rains so much here everyone’s already got them.’

One family only moved to the village on November 15 – and have yet to experience a dry day.

Mother Sarah-Jane Absalom, 44, said: ‘I hope the locals don’t think I’m the wicked witch of the East and have brought this terrible weather with me.’

The music teacher, who lives with electrician husband Joe, 50, and children Hugo, five, and Verity, three, added: ‘The day we moved in it was torrential and persistent, we were literally soaked to the skin. Since then that’s the way it has continued.’

The only silver lining is that Eglwswrw, about 12 miles from Fishguard, stands 423ft above sea level and so never floods.

The Met Office noted that the weather station closest to the village, at Whitechurch, has recorded at least 0.2mm of rain – the level denoting a ‘rainy day’ – for the past 81 days.

But meteorologist Emma Sharples said: ‘That sequence could be broken today. It looks like it will be the first entirely dry day there since October, although there is still is a risk of a few showers.’

She said warm, moist air blowing up from the south was to blame for the village’s rainfall, adding: ‘The direction of the wind has been key – the Pembrokeshire coast is the first point at which the rain-bearing clouds meet the land.’

Where I live before we got about 51" of rain per year and it rained about 164 days out of a year.  That not a lot for that area, as we don't get the downpour of rain like some states.  We got a lot of misty or light rain, but not a lot of the heavy downpour rain.
